This is a great opportunity to taste through 10 of their wines, and to meet upclose the growers behind these superb wines, all in our casual, cosy 14-seater long tasting table.

 


Domaine Jean Grivot

One of the top names in Vosne Romanee, Domaine Jean Grivot is making some of their best wines in recent years. The style has shifted towards more finesse and elegance, yet still gives the same concentration and intensity from before. The wines are bright, juicy and full of energy. Highly recommended.

Domaine Duroche

TFWE team first tasted a bottle of 2013 Charmes-Chambertin from Domaine Duroche earlier this year and we were enthralled, and dare I say it, charmed by it. The wine had the most delicious perfume and fruit, and is made in a supple, inviting, transparent style. Before we knew it we had finished this ‘sample’ bottle. Subsequent tastings showed the same open, transparent style. This is enormously pleasurable Burgundy, from a domaine run by father and son team Gilles and Pierre Duroche. Transparency, delicacy and deliciousness of fruit are the key words here, along with value for money.
